Summary:

Pg. 74. In Baylor and Archer Counties, central northern Texas, the Wichita group (Clyde formation?) is topped by a scarp-forming limestone known locally as Maybelle limestone. This and lower members of this limestone belt are continuous with Lueders. [Age is Permian.]

Summary:

Sheet 2. Maybelle limestone. Examination of type outcrops of Maybelle and Lake Kemp beds affords no satisfactory ground for classing the limestones as parts of the Lueders. No basis was found for recognizing any limestone beds of the Lueders in the Colorado River area [mapped in this report] as corresponding to Maybelle and Lake Kemp beds, respectively.
